Becca Stevens

Becca Stevens (voc, git, ukulele), Oli Rockberger (p), Kaveh Rastegar (b), Jordan Perlson (dr)

North Carolina bred, Brooklyn based singer/multiinstrumentalist Becca Stevens is a composer, bandleader, and educator. In her playing, singing, and writing, Stevens has a voice that can only be accurately described as her own. Her original music is hailed worldwide for its its intricate harmonies and rhythms subtly rooted in jazz and Irish Folk and West African music. Boundless in the elements from which she draws her inspiration, Stevens is known for her unique ability to craft exquisite and authentic compositions both for her own band, and for GRAMMY award winning artists who run the gamut of genre from Jacob Collier, to Michael League (Snarky Puppy), and most notably with folk legend David Crosby. Stevens is a member of Crosby’s Lighthouse Band whose album ‘Here If You Listen’ (BMG ‘18), features the distinct songwriting of its four members— Stevens, Crosby, League, and Michelle Willis. Stevens has received copious praise from the likes of The New York Times, was Downbeat Magazine’s 2017 Rising Star Female Vocalist, and was featured on NPR Music’s “Songs We Love”. She has toured the world performing with her band, and collaborating with peers such as Brad Mehldau, Kneebody, Esperanza Spalding, Billy Childs, Ambrose Akinmusire, Vijay Iyer, Taylor Eigsti, José James, Eric Harland, Gerald Clayton, Travis Sullivan’s Björkestra and many others. In 2015, Perfect Animal, the highly anticipated follow up to Weightless (Sunnyside), produced by engineer Scott Solter, was released on Universal Music Classics. Becca’s music is featured on Snarky Puppy’s Family Dinner, Vol. 2 (GroundUP) and she released her latest album Regina (GroundUP) in March 2017 featuring Laura Mvula, Jacob Collier, David Crosby and produced by Troy Miller (Gregory Porter, Laura Mvula, Amy Winehouse) and co-produced by Jacob Collier, and Michael League of Snarky Puppy. Regina is a tribute to queens as well as the name of her trusted muse who inspired all of the compositions on the album.

BECCA’S NEW ALBUM “This is a body of music that is coming straight from my heart. I think that with the political climate in America, and with struggles going on within and around me, I’ve been particularly hungry to write. I started to write, and found myself writing music with more movement, and more joy than ever. I asked myself what I would want to hear if life was getting me down. I opened my heart. Allowed the process to be easier. I found myself putting down the guitar to dance more. Writing bass and drum parts I could dance to rather than my usual guitar driven composing. And if I got too caught up in something I’d look at that photo, and smile, and keep going. I feel as though I’m just in the beginning of this creative period. I’m really really excited about it. I’ve been collaborating more, and with people who I love and trust musically and just as humans, inspiring me as well as taking some of the pressure off of me. I’ve never been more excited to write music, and this approach of following joy and movement and lightheartedness is bringing those same aspects into my heart and my life. I hope it brings the same to others.”- Becca Stevens
